Killaloe Fair delights all ages

The 42nd annual Killaloe Craft & Community Fair was held on the sunny weekend of Aug. 10-12. Because of the welcome rain during recent days, Killaloe Hagarty Richards at last relaxed the Total Fire Ban. This meant campers at the fair could light cooking fires in the sheltered valley fairground on Mountain View Road as in previous years.

A traditional high point of the fair was the Bubblegum Contest. (Click below for video.)

The annual Parade left the Kids Zone and travelled through the grounds before ending at the Main Stage on Saturday afternoon.

As promised this year’s fair offered great music, both live and DJ. Above: Sons of Zebedee perform.

Craft vendors and demonstrations, pony rides and slot car racing for the kids, tepee shelters, delicious local food and a relaxed vibe rounded out the weekend.
